The PS5 might get an unanticipated special in Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) if a recent report is to be believed. Sony might remain in talks to purchase Take-Two Interactive, the parent business of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 hitmaker Rockstar Games in addition to 2K, the publisher behind BioShock, XCOM, and WWE games to name a few. If real, it would put Microsoft’s E3 2018 expose of numerous studio purchases to embarrassment with GTA 6 alone. That said, it’s rather unlikely that Sony would actually spend on obtaining a company of Take-Two’s size and stature, more so when its focus has actually been on first-party exclusives like God of War and Uncharted 4. Nevertheless, the proposition of GTA 6 being exclusive to the PS5 would make company sense offered how popular GTA V has actually been.
According to Marketwatch citing Joel Kulina, Head of Technology and Media Trading at Wedbush Securities, Sony “remains in sophisticated board level conversations to obtain Take-Two Interactive in a mainly money deal”. This would value Take-Two at $130 a share. Take Two’s stock climbed 4.7 percent on the rumour.
Formerly it was recommended that GTA 6 might occur in two areas– Vice City and South America. While the previous is Rockstar’s take on Miami, gamers will go to South America for a couple of objectives. The game is being referred to at Rockstar as Task Americas.
In addition to this, GTA 6 may, for the very first time, include a female protagonist as one of it leads. Though there’s no confirmation if you’ll have the ability to control numerous characters like you might in GTA V.
However do not expect to play GTA 6 anytime soon. The game is slated to be readily available around 2022. If so, it could potentially signal completion of the PS4 and Xbox One with GTA 6 being their cumulative swan tune in addition to it being re-released for the next wave of consoles from Sony and Microsoft in addition to the PC.
The source of this details is YouTube channel The Know (via VG247) that cites an “within source”. The Know’s track record is spotty at finest.
When it comes to the PS5, PlayStation 5 or whatever Sony prepares to call its PS4 follower, it might be slated for a 2021 release date.
According to Tokyo-based Rakuten Securities Economic Research study Institute’s Yasuo Imanaka via video gaming blog Twinfinite, the PS5 could be out in between April 2021 and March 2022. He also says that there’s no chance of the PS5 releasing prior to March 2020. He also considers the possibility of an April 2020 to March 2021 release window but thinks it’s unlikely. Aside from hypothesizing on the PS5 release date, Imanaka thinks Ghost of Tsushima will be out by March 2020 with The Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding launched by the coming fiscal year or the next (by March 2021 most current).
It appears that the PS5 launch will not just effect Sony’s games division but the business as a whole, Imanaka thinks. This would describe why we’ve seen rampant speculation surrounding the console.
In related PS5 news, it might perhaps work with PS4, PS3, PS2, and PS1 video games. It’s an interesting relocation from Sony if it gets executed as it might spell completion of remasters or re-releases that this generation of consoles is well-known for. It potentially hints that Sony is confident of the first-party games and exclusives we’ll see on the PS5 too.
